William Kisaalita Engineering Solutions for Africa’s Rural Poor
University of Georgia professor William Kisaalita engineers simple, practical solutions — a milk chiller, a nutcracker and an egg incubator — for Africa’s rural poor.
“What he’s doing is absolutely unique,” says Vicki McMaken, Kisaalita’s colleague and assistant director of the Office of Global Programs at UGA. “He identifies a problem that affects the poorest people in a community and finds a solution that fits the scale of the problem.”
